GBP/USD Current price: 1.4925
The GBP/USD hung around 1.49. There was a crack above recent resistance at 1.4960, but that did not hold after a previous support pivot of 1.4982 acted as resistance. Pressure remains toward the 1.4780 pivot – 1.48 handle in the near-term, unless GBP/USD can climb above 1.4985 in the next session. Although cable remains bearish, note the bullish divergences with price against the CCI and the Momentum indicator on the daily chart. However, GBP/USD can resolve this bullish divergence by simply stalling sideways until it is ready to continue lower.
